Toulouse Olympique vs Hull KR: Kick-off time, TV channel and predicted line-ups

In Tony Smith’s 500th game as a Super League coach, he faces a unique challenge. Just days after a derby, he has to go to France to battle Toulouse on Easter Monday.

Toulouse will be hoping to pick up a vital win today as they look to give themselves the best chance of survival in 2022. They’re playing a side with one day’s less rest and have home advantage so could shock the Robins here.

However, Hull KR will be boosted by the derby win and will be looking to use that momentum to down the French side and keep the pressure up on the top four.

Kick-off time and TV channel

The game kicks off at 15:00 UK time.

There will be no TV coverage in the UK but highlights will be available on Super League’s YouTube channel.

Predicted Line-ups

Toulouse Olympique
Toulouse will be boosted by the return of Andrew Dixon who will sure up their middles quite nicely. They’ll also be able to name explosive substitutes Gadwin Springer and Justin Sangare on the bench for extra bite. Olly Ashall-Bott will provide speed at fullback.

Hull KR
Tony Smith has room to freshen up his side with Ben Crooks and Brad Takairangi back in the mix but with both edges playing so well recently, it would be hard for Smith to change things on either side. He will have to make a change at fullback with no Lachlan Coote so Will Dagger will likely step in at one. Korbin Sims may make his return to the 17 as well bringing the Robins some fresh legs in the middle.
